Laura Stocks

Solicitor

I have worked in family law since 2011. Prior to qualifying as a solicitor in 2015, I worked as a paralegal and then completed my training contract with a well known firm in Birmingham City Centre. I worked for firms in Birmingham City Centre and the Black Country before moving to Davisons in October 2019.

I deal with all aspects of family law including divorce and separation, financial matters, child arrangements and injunctions. I have a firm yet sensitive approach which assists clients at what is a highly emotive time, but one where it pays to be pragmatic. I am a member of Resolution, which means I approach matters in a non-confrontational way and wherever possible aim to deal with matters without the need for Court intervention. The best part of the job is knowing that I have helped someone through one of the worst possible times of their lives, enabling them to move onto the next chapter.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling, skiing, rock climbing and spending time with family and friends. I am owned by three rabbits and on occasions (when they let me) I volunteer at a local rabbit rescue.

      With the festive period almost upon us, many separated couples will have to think about how best to share the time with their children over the Christmas break. This can be stressful as parents sometimes find it hard to agree who the children should be with and when, particularly on the all-important Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This year things may be even more difficult given the current pandemic.

      Under the current rules, children under the age of 18 can continue to move between their parents' homes for the purposes of contact and this applies regardless of which tier families find themselves in. Between 23 and 27 December this year up to three households can meet to form a Christmas bubble. This should come as welcome news as it means that children moving between their parents' homes between this period will be able to spend time with extended family members/friends on both parents' sides.
